- Before and after a guest enters your home

- Before meditation

How to Use Smudge Sticks
Holding the stick by the “handle” end, use a lighter to ignite the tip. Blow out any open flames so that the leaves slowly smolder. Next, wave the wand around a room, person, or objects to direct the fragrant, cleansing smoke. Catch the ashes in a heat-resistant dish. (An abalone shell is traditional, but you can use a pot, incense burner, or even a regular plate, as long as you put something under it.) Sticks can be extinguished in a dish of sand and re-used many times.
Black Sage: Used to encourage dreams and visions, Black Sage is an herb of introspection and inner healing. When burned before bedtime, it aids in restful sleep and pleasant dreams. Black Sage is used for astral travel, shamanic journeying, and for protection during such excursions.
